Iberostar Laguna Azul
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
The Iberostar Laguna Azul is a great luxury resort situated within the resort strip of Cuba. The resort boasts a great array of a la carte and buffet options. The pool and beach area are also fantastic. You will never experience a shortage of lounge chairs. The Iberostar Laguna Azul is a great getaway for couples who are looking for a great place to lounge and relax.
We've just came back from our 7 days stay at Iberostar LA, Varadero. Sunshine all 7 days long with a bit of rain at night time. Amazing sea and clean beach! What we liked most: awesome & clean beach, great animation, cool night shows, nice buffet, well kept pool with a bare minimum of chlorine. Yummy drinks and cool bartenders! Cozy little adjacent to the pool cafe Jardin, which has the best coffee in the resort. Every day we would enjoy our dinner and then switch to this little cafe to enjoy the cup of coffee and nightly entertainment, like saxophone / Cuban band / singer. Reception works amazingly well around the clock, and is ready to fix all troubles if any. Separate desk to check out the room, so convenient! Your sincere smile, heart felt Hola and a tip will go a loooong way. Hotel exteriors are polished and kept extremely clean, however rooms need some major TLC. We had a trouble with our conditioner, our room maid showed us how to fix it. Baby crib was broken, we fixed it ourselves as hotel didn't have a spare one. The shower head was literally crumbling in our hands...it's ok as we came for the weather and beach, and not for the comfort of the room, lol. People complain about beach towels... we didn't bother to change them as they dried perfectly well on the balcony. By the way, don't leave your beach towel as it might get stolen. Take it with you instead. There is plenty of space on the beach and around the pool. Internet connection is not the best, so we avoided the frustration by simply staying offline all week long and truly enjoyed being cut off from FB and rest of the world. Would we come back? Possibly if given a lower price, as we paid $2200 for a family of 4, 2 adults, toddler and infant. Have fun and enjoy the stay!
We stayed here and I'm sure that the hotel staff will remember us as we had a problem upon check in to find that our reservation had been cancelled. Now the hotel was not at fault as it was an agent working for Thomas cook apparently but after three days my husband had had enough of being sent on a wild goose chase and contently being mis-informed. The icing on the cake was when we thought that we had found a sympathetic ear from the sales person who resolved our problem, only when we asked her to call a number that was given to us for our transfer home booking she obliged and came back with an 11:30 am pick up (for a 7:30pm flight!!) when challenging her about this as it would mean that we were going to be in the airport 6 hours before departure, she informed us that it is a requirement from virgin to check in 6 hours prior to departure. Well after experiencing some stretched truth already from the receptionist staff I was a little concerned about this. We decided to go with it anyway and trust Enid in her wisdom. On the day that we were leaving we waited at the reception and found that there was no transport. We waited for half an hour before we asked another person in reception to call havana tours of which it was confirmed that the transport had been booked for 13 30 not 11 30 as Enid had informed us. Also upon investigating further, virgin only requires a 3 hour max check in.So the hotel itself we have nothing to complain about. The rooms were clean and the staff friendly. The only thing I would say is that the food is not brilliant even with the choices.
We stayed here from Oct 3-15, 2016 and we absolutely loved it. Anyone who knows even a little bit about Cuba should have realistic expectations. They work so hard with what they have available to them. First of all when it comes to food we thought they had plenty of choices and it's literally impossible to stay hungry. We loved all a la carte restaurants, but most of all the staff at ILA are beyond amazing and friendly. A special thanks to Alvaro at kids Club who made our daughters stay that much more pleasant. He is awesome. The beach was breathtaking and we absolutely loved it. We would definitely return to Laguna Azul again.
Me and my girlfriend visited the Laguna Azul at the beginning of June and we had such a great time! A wonderful hotel with a huge array of pools (5 I believe!!). A lovely beach for relaxing on or going for long walks. The staff are very helpful and nothing is too much bother. Compared to my last visit to Cuba the all inclusive cuisine was much more varied and catered for all our needs (not forgetting the cocktail bar! A must visit!!). The hotel is situated towards the top of the varardero strip but taxis and buses are easily accessible to go to down town. Highly recommend this hotel if you would like a holiday with plenty to do in between all of the time spent relaxing with a cocktail the odd cocktail or two!!
Beds were nicely made with a touch of artistic flair to the sheets...swans. Foods were abundant but bland. Drinks were flowing in several places. Nightly entertainment included the circus shows, musics in the beach and cabaret dances. We enjoyed taking in some sporting activity such as scuba diving from the catamaran, canoeing and paragliding from the plane. On site they were guides to take us to explore Havana and nearby caves. But one cautionary tale " beware of mosquitoes in the evening".
